Learning Disability Week, 19th-25th June

The Learning Disability Week is an annual event which aims to raise awareness of learning disability in the UK, this year’s theme is employment and focuses on providing equal employment opportunities for individuals with learning disabilities. The event is open to residents from all around the country and will support them to think of their own personal growth and ways in which they can develop. Talks on ways of self-development will be taking place from the 19th -25th of June.


My Life Learning is a Disability Confidence Committed Employer

The aim of The Disability Confidence Scheme is to help employers make the most of the opportunities when employing people with disabilities. The scheme challenges people’s attitudes towards disability, helping to increase understanding around this and ensuring that disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. 17.5% people of the working age within the UK are disabled or have a health condition; not considering this 17.5% of people for employment means you are not drawing employees from the widest possible pool of talent.

County Council budget cuts causes high demand for life skills training

We often hear of county council’s lowering budgets for services for adults living with learning disabilities, which could leave some of the most vulnerable people living in the UK in a position of uncertainty and fear.
